Feel the sea breeze blowing on your face. Feel the salt tickling your nose while listening to the sound of seagulls in the distance …
Yes, the holidays are incredible. But they can also be useful and good for the soul. We save our days off and work hard all year, so traveling should be a sacred experience. Private beach holidays have their own healing powers and a special way to renew our outlook. Here are some reasons why you should plan your next beach vacation.
- MENTAL WELL-BEING
Contemplating through water nourishes the soul. The breathtaking view of the ocean water, which psychologists often call “blue space”, actually calms our minds. If you have ever watched an ocean and found that your problems seem to disappear when a feeling of peace dominates you, you are not alone. We are biologically designed to discover the beach.
- FRESH AIR
Most of us work in an office environment with fluorescent lighting. At least half of us never left the office during lunch. Do the scary math in your head. It’s been a long time without fresh air. If that’s your story, you need that sweet and salty aroma, the cool breeze and the sun that a beach vacation can satisfy.
- THE PEOPLE ON THE BEACH AND THE PEOPLE ON THE ISLAND
If you’re lucky enough to have visited a seaside town, you know what I’m talking about. Everyone wears shorts, tank tops, puka and straw hats to enjoy the beach vacation. A smile and a beer are essential, and there is always live music and delicious food. Our responsibilities, even those we love, can easily complicate our lives. To relax! Life is simple. Let the islanders remind you.
- EXPLORE THE OCEAN
Snorkeling, surfing, water skiing. I could finish this point there, but I will continue. Our ocean is a vast playground for incredible beach activities. Whether you are on a romantic Caribbean cruise with your partner or on a family vacation on land, everyone loves water adventures. There is much more to the ocean than enjoying, reading and napping (although I would say that there are compelling reasons to do so).
- REST AND RENEWAL
While most people say that the beach drains you, I would say that it really does offer the gift of total relaxation. After returning home and taking a shower, I fall asleep practically before my head hits the pillow. Mmm This true feeling of relaxation brings us back to our lives with a renewed sense of purpose and a clear mind.
